The private sector starts to mobilize to help the public power to rebuild the destroyed installations in Brasilia. The Brazilian Mining Institute (IBRAM) announced tonight that it will donate R$1 million to repair public property in the federal capital.
“This is a symbolic gesture to reaffirm our commitment to democracy”, quotes a note from the entity. IBRAM informs that the donation will be made by the entity and mining companies associated with the entity.
In a note, the Institute says that “every Brazilian should feel affected by the attacks launched against the powers of the Republic”. “The moment is for each one to demonstrate that violence cannot be accepted as a way to protest and impose wills. Reconciling the country is essential for social and economic development”, cites the text.
In view of what happened, the organization says that supporting the repair of damages is a decision “to emphasize its belief in and respect for democracy, a condition for social justice and preservation of the environment”.
Among the associated companies are large and medium-sized mining companies, in addition to companies linked to the sector, such as consultancies, law firms and automakers. Alcoa, Anglo American, Arcelor Mittal, BHP, CBA, Gerdau, Rio Tinto, Samarco, Usiminas, Vale and Yara are among the associates.
